  1. I'm listening to All Saint's "Saints and Sinners" and "Studio 1", the Orbit songs are amazing.
    Also "In Blue" and "Borrowed heaven" by The Corrs.
    And last but no least S Club's "Seeing Double" ( I was never a fan of them but this album is the perfect balance between 2000s pop and a more mature sound).

  2. Take note whoever-owns-the-Scriti-catalogue, there's a market waiting for this stuff.

    Two guaranteed purchases already...a few more and we'll have a Top 10 entry next week.
     
  3. I've been listening to a lot of INXS lately - "The Swing" and "Listen like thieves" albums in particular!

  4. I only got into Scritti fairly recently (I should have got into them after I saw them supporting Saint Etienne really) and this compilation is just brilliant. They're a band right up my street and they really should get mentioned more. Their music is pure pop and somehow rather timeless. I can't think of much else from the 80s that sounds like their stuff.

    The lockdown has given me a nice excuse to to not only dig through my archives but investigate artists I've just never investigated before. I'm very into Sparks right now and I've rediscovered the 2007 Stuart Price-produced Seal album (it turns out that I'm not such a fan of the rest of his stuff though).

    God, I love New Jack Swing music so much. La Reid and Babyface managed to temporarily halt Ms Easton's declining music career with this record too.
     
  6. That is such a masterpiece of an album, it’s untrue.

  9. Me too. Other great production from Prince and Jellybean as well.

  10. Placebo's Without You I'm Nothing. Becoming a born-again Placebo fan was not the flex I was expecting this week.

  11. Me too.

    I absolutely loved the Babyface versus Teddy Riley Instagram special a few weeks ago. Personally, Babyface was already the winner for me. The last few weeks I've been playing a lot of his productions and co-productions with L.A. Reid. So many great songs and albums. The Lover in Me is definitely one of their best.

    Toni Braxton's first album. Whew.

  12. Perfect listening for surreal sunny days.

    Pristine almost clinical production, a 70s supermodel turned chanteuse, obtuse lyrics in her own made up Zazu language .......’keenovay’ anyone? And she gets the credit for Steely Dan working together again.

  13. "Magic smile" is bliss!

  14. I bought Magic smile but kept getting copies that jumped relentlessly and each time I returned it the same thing happened so I gave up on it. These kids who go on about 'vinyl is so cool' will never understand the struggle!

    9 solid tracks, including 2 all time classic singles and a further 2 hugely underrated anthems about social injustice. To think, only their 2nd album too.

    Results by Liza!
     
  17. I got it for 50p in Beggars Banquet, Kingston Upon Thames, before it made the chart. I guess they didn't think it was going to be a hit.

  18. A&M vinyl was rubbish. Had the same with Suzanne Vega's debut.
     
  19. This explains why my copy of Janet Jackson's Control was rubbish. It was the last vinyl I bought in the '80s and I vowed to move to cassettes - and I did.
     
  20. Fabulous!!
